You might want to look at trying xCAT, they have a yum repo for
installation and it will take care of a lot of the heavy lifting for you.

It does need some time invested to get things right, but we use it for
our SGI Altix XE cluster (rebadged SuperMicro boxes) and for our IBM
systems (both Intel iDataplex and Power7 service and front end nodes
for our BG/Q).

http://xcat.sourceforge.net/

Supports diskless nodes and diskfull installs of nodes (and hybrids).

Good luck!
Chris
